Almanac - Red Lentils
About this grain:
Red Lentils absorb flavour and break down easily to provide a creamy texture in soups and stews. They showcase a mild and sweet flavour and are a great source of iron, potassium, fibre and protein.
Lentils (also known as pulses) are an essential contributor to regenerative agriculture. They use half the energy input of other crops such as wheat and fix nitrogen for improved soil health.
